Ancient Empires from Malta to Rome featuring Sicily and the Amalfi Coast aboard Le Bougainville
Cruise for seven nights from Valletta, Malta to Rome, Italy aboard Le Bougainville, a new luxurious ship which made her debut in 2019. Begin with a day on the island nation of Malta; visit the Amalfi Coast and Pompei; and explore Taormina, Syracuse, and Agrigento on the island of Sicily. Unpack once and enjoy the advantages of small-ship cruising—Le Bougainville can dock in small ports inaccessible to larger vessels, tours are in small groups, land excursions are included, meals are open seating, and each of the 92 cabins has a private balcony. Lecturers from cosponsoring institutions will give talks on board.
Join an optional pre-cruise extension for two nights at a hotel in Malta to explore other highlights of this incredible island nation from May 28-31. An optional post-cruise extension is offered in Rome from June 7-10.
